IMHO Zimmer is correct that GD songs played--by Further--by definition cannot be described as "EPIC".

However, Deadpolitics is right in that--on paper--that is an EPIC set list.

Can you imagine if The Grateful Dead had played a show with a set list like this anytime from 1980 onwards? I think people would have spontaneously erupted into flames!

Which is also one of the reasons I get frustrated with certain bands today (not going to name names) who keep playing the same damn songs over & over again, show after show, year after year. As we all know, nothing lasts forever, and I can't help but wonder--5, 10, or 20 years, will they look back and regret not trying to play more interesting shows by writing more "epic" set lists for both themselves & their fans??
